Book Idea…Moving Ahead…Asking For Help

Guatemala 2013 694

If you happen to follow me on Facebook, you may have seen a couple of status updates from me over the past couple of weeks about writing a book and talking to book publishers.  I’ve learned a lot the past two weeks about the whole process by talking to a couple of friends who have navigated the book writing/publishing journey for themselves.  And I’m hoping to tap into more people in the coming days and weeks as I move down this road.

I thought it might be helpful to share my early ideas with you.  I’d love to get some feedback from you as I value your thoughts and opinions as part of The Stretched Community.

I want to help Christian “couch potatoes” to understand the value of moving outside their comfort zone, so they can live a life worth living.  Specifically, I hope my own leap of faith, short-term mission trip story will inspire others to take similar leaps of faith.  In my book, I’ll share practical tips for moving off the couch and into the mission field of life.

This is a work in progress, but it’s a start I wanted to share with all of you.

Now, here’s where you come in.  I’d love to get your thoughts, ideas, and questions about this topic to help me focus my ideas.

What do you need to know about short-term missions?

What do you want to know about my short-term missions story?

What specifically would make this a book you just have to read and share with others?

Does this sound like something that would interest you?

Do you have any advice for a first time book writer like myself?

Seriously, I would like to hear your feedback.  Leave a comment with your thoughts.
